A heavyweight contest is in the works for September 24th's UFC 135 according to a report from

Ben Rothwell will return to action to take on Australia Mark Hunt after not fighting in over a year. His last outing was a decision victory over Gilbert Yvel that left Rothwell, and his boss Dana White, less than impressed.

Other fights expected to be on the card include a light heavyweight title defense as Jon Jones will take on Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, while welterweights Matt Hughes and Diego Sanchez also highlight the card.
